Affordable fully functioned firewall

Barracuda Networks : 28 February, 2013  (New Product)
Barracuda releases new firewall with cloud integration and next generation features available at affordable rates
Affordable fully functioned firewall

The Barracuda Firewall is the first firewall with a full next-generation feature set designed to meet the needs of small and mid-sized organisations.

Next-generation firewalls add the ability to inspect traffic more deeply than just at the level of network protocol and port, in order to regain control over today’s evasive applications. In addition, they relate this information to individual users, enabling granular regulation of traffic. Until now, however, they have been expensive, cumbersome to use, and designed to meet the needs of very large corporations with dedicated IT security personnel. In contrast, the Barracuda Firewall was designed from the ground up to deliver next-generation functionality in an easy-to-use, affordable package. Key highlights of the Barracuda Firewall include:

* Power of the Cloud – Barracuda Firewall leverages the power of the cloud for centralised management and content filtering, with the elasticity of unlimited resources.
* Next-Generation Capabilities – Barracuda Firewall provides layer 7 application control for granular application awareness, user visibility, and intelligent traffic management.
* Easy to Use – With centralised, cloud-based management and simple yet powerful controls, Barracuda Firewall requires no specialised training or personnel to install, configure, and manage.

“The Barracuda Firewall is not like other mid-market firewalls,” said Klaus Gheri, Vice President Product Management Europe, at Barracuda Networks. “It offloads content filtering and malware protection to the cloud, which brings a lot of benefits. Your investment is protected, since upgrades to deal with new kinds of threats happen transparently. Scaling up capacity is painless, thanks to the cloud’s elasticity. And the actual work of filtering content doesn’t bog down your network, since it happens in the cloud. The Barracuda Firewall truly is the first next-generation firewall built for everyone.”

Besides allowing detailed control over users and applications, the Barracuda Firewall eliminates the need for costly high-capacity backup links by aggregating disparate links such as MPLS, T1, DSL, cable, and 3G. It balances and shapes traffic among links according to policies based on applications, traffic loads, and link status. Since many applications are cloud based, multi-link management ensures customers that the cloud is permanently reachable with adequate QoS even when less costly broadband links are used. Link failover, QoS and aggregation are easy to configure and included with every Barracuda Firewall.
